Geelong star midfielder Tim Kelly has reportedly met with both Fremantle and West Coast, as he continues to decide where he’ll ply his trade in 2020.

Kelly requested a trade back home to WA last year, and was keen to play for the Eagles although West Coast and Geelong couldn’t come to a trade agreement.

According to, Kelly’s preference is still to go to the Eagles – if he leaves the Cats.

Kelly has met with both clubs, and he seems much more likely to leave at the end of the season then he did 12 months ago, given his contract runs out at season’s end.

The Cats are still hopeful of keeping him around, but he seems more likely than not to head home.

Fremantle is set to lose the likes of Brad Hill and Ed Langdon this off-season, meaning the signature of Kelly could be seen as replacements for the duo.

The Dockers are said to be able to offer Kelly more money, although the Eagles are certainly in their premiership window.
